Safety classes to teach children how to ride elevators and escalators safely are conducted by Fujitec Group companies.
The classes are primarily aimed at students in early elementary grades. Since many accidents involving children occur around the doors of elevators and when getting on and off escalators, the classes focus on teaching children preventative safety tips.
As an initiative of the Head Office in Shiga Prefecture, Fujitec has participated in reed cutting around Lake Biwa, the largest lake in Japan, since 2014.
Reeds, a perennial grass species, play an important role in purifying the water and preserving the biodiversity of the lake. By cutting reeds that grew in winter, the new reeds can grow stronger. Fujitec participate in these volunteer activities every February and December, and plan to continue this initiative.
Fujitec Group companies continue to participate in blood donation activities, often called “the gift that saves lives.” Every October, the Japanese Red Cross Society visits Big Wing, Fujitec’s main elevator manufacturing base, to conduct a blood donation drive. In Hong Kong, Fujitec has designated a volunteer blood donation day in June and December each year.
